The OpenGov Foundation is dedicated to developing and deploying technologies that support every citizen's ability to participate in their government, and hold it accountable.
Dear #Hack4Congress-ers,

Thank you for making Hack4Congress such an incredible success. Hundreds of civic hackers, technologists, congressional staffers and more came together at events across the country to send a simple message to Congress: it’s time to bring government into the 21st century, and we’re here to help.

Thank you for being a part of this movement.

We’re working hard to turn the huge momentum you’ve helped create into lasting change, and will keep you updated as things progress. But first, we want to invite you to our biggest Hack4Congress event of the season: next week’s final presentations directly to Members of Congress and their staff.

On Tuesday, May 12th at 10am the winners of Hack4Congress-DC, San Francisco, and Cambridge will gather in on Capitol Hill to pitch their solutions to some of Congress’ most tech-savvy members. Please RSVP to join us for Tuesday’s event.

Thanks again for being a part of this.

Team OpenGov

PS: Can’t join us on Tuesday? You can still help by sharing your Hack4Congress stories on Facebook and Twitter using the #Hack4Congress hashtag!

About The OpenGov Foundation

OpenGov is a small non-profit, non-partisan 501(c)3 foundation working to open government. That means making it easier for people to access and use as much government information as possible. We believe innovative technology and open data can help deliver democratic governments that listen to citizens, operate efficiently, and solve our shared challenges the smart way.

We believe democracy means everyone should have the chance to be a hands-on contributor.
